Path to Exile 4 times to make it modern legal, Swords to Plowshares isnt.

Reduce Spell Snare to 1-2 copies. Thats normaly enough.

Archmage's Charm for Counter or Draw. Ancestral Vision for Draw. Serum Visions for more Filter. Mana Leak is a good 2 drop counter. Search for Azcanta  Flip is a good filter, too and can dig deep like Narset.

You can not use Chandra, Torch of Defiance to cast spells that don't have a mana cost, like Ancestral Vision.

In the spell casting process, there are several steps, but the one that we're concerned about here is the process of determining and paying costs. The cost of a spell like Ancestral Vision is nonexistence. This forms an unpayable cost. There are a few ways to get around this. The easiest way is to use things like As Foretold to cast them "without paying their mana cost." This will allow you to forego the unpayable cost formed by the spell's nonexistence mana cost.

Conversely, something that simply allows you to cast a spell doesn't get around this unpayable cost. This is what Chandra does. She exiles the unpayable spell and gives you the opportunity to cast it, but "cast" is the operative word here. You still have to follow the normal process of casting a spell which will cause you to try and pay an unpayable cost.

Hope this helps!!

DeinoStinkus, thanks for the reply. The cards I intend to cast have a CMC of 0 because of suspend. The goal is to bypass suspend and cast the spell immediately using Chandra, Torch of Defiance's first ability. I am referring to only the suspend spells that don't have a CMC, for example Ancestral Vision has a CMC of 0.

Hello everyone,

I have been working on a modern constructed decks that leverage As Foretold and Electrodominance coupled with various suspend spells.


Ancestral Vision

Crashing Footfalls

Restore Balance

My question is can I use Chandra, Torch of Defiance's first ability to cast cards with Suspend if the cost is 0?

Hey there, missy!

Not a lot to critique here, but I do have a handful of card suggestions...

And finally, in my opinion, Migration Path is just a strictly better version of Explosive Vegetation, and should be swapped out in all of the decks.

All of these are wildly helpful in my deck, Ramos Cascade Ramp, which of course has a very different endgame, but which is very similar in operation. Feel free to give that a gander.

just curious, why the playset of CCs? Since restore balance balances out hand size, you don't want to be holding up cards like a control player else you're gonna get your hand emptied. I would probably cut those for something like Ancestral Vision

birchmaster22: No, it's something I'll fix with my next release. Seems like I have a few things to fix! They are supposed to be invisible but trick the browser to preload the flipped icons so it doesn't flash in from not being loaded to suddenly needing to be loaded when hovering flip icons.

Goblin_Guide: Good catch on Ancestral Vision! Didn't realize they would show up that way, but I can see why; there is no metadata that defines a color for it, so it uses the default color which is multicolor (less for me to code for each color combination that is golden). Thankfully I can hardcode it for each no mana cost card, just as I hardcoded flip icons for each different card that can flip. With Bump in the Night it's another story. Because I'm trying to mimic the frame and name box with these styles, not depict the color identity. It's a black card with a red ability, thus it has a black frame but a Rakdos color identity. Also, there's no metadata on the card that says it is red.

Here's Ancestral Vision: There's only the type of the card in the metadata.

Here's Bump in the Night: Notice that it only says it's black, so the css colors it black.

Hardcoded flip icons: I have to point them out using exact names since there is no flip metadata.

Hey Wihito! I just realized that the cards that have no mana cost (i.e., Ancestral Vision) show up as multicolored cards instead of their actual colors.

Also for whatever reason Bump in the Night only shows up as a black card and not a Rakdos one?
